I am so sad to hear of Stony's passing, just last night. I worked for AAFES in loss prevention in the 1990's. Our incident reports went to Stony for review and processing. I would have more red ink on my report then black ink.. lol, but Stony was fair, he taught me so much that I still use today as a law enforcement officer. I spent as much time as I could talking with Stony, listing to the many stories from his Army days. He always said "Tim your a good man". I am so proud to have known him. Prayers to his family, he will be missed. Semper FI Stony

I met Stoney over twenty-seven years ago, working on Selfridge ANGB. He was a person that I had a great deal of respect for, and I would consider him a true friend. Since I relocated several years ago, I have not been in touch with him, but I am often reminded of our chats at his office or home. He always had interesting stories about his days in the service, but I recall his conversations of his boys the most. Such a proud Father. He also always had this ratty bear on the dashboard of his truck. It was utterly sun-damaged and covered with electrical tape, but he remarked how it had belonged to his Father. Seeing a man you admired shows such dedication to his wife, his children, and maintaining a connection with his Father, who probably had long since passed, let you know the measure of a man and a worthy person to respect. I will miss our conversation, my friend, until the moment we meet again.

So sorry to hear of Stoney's death. What a fine man. Frank told me many stories about him and his career in the military. So glad You and Stoney came to Florida where we had so much fun for a short visit. My prayers are with your family.

When I think of Uncle Stoney, I think of the law. I think of him secretly showing me where he was carrying his gun. I think of him dressing undercover as a woman. He would encourage me to come over to his house (even though 1-2 hrs away) to practice shooting so I can learn to protect myself. I am too much of a pacifist to carry a gun but I always appreciated the sentiment! He is the guy I would want around if there was a terriorist attack or a shooter in public. I also think about the great sons he raised alongside his beauty, Aunt Dolores. You were a sweet couple and my parents enjoyed your company together as well. May they RIP along with Uncle Stoney. My love and prayers are with you and I hope the happy memories of your time with him make the loss easier to bear.

When I think of Uncle Stoney the word "gentleman" comes to me. A man of convictions and virtues to be respected and learned. R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Now you are free of all ailments, Uncle Stoney, and have the full time job (vocation - a calling from God) of watching over us and interceding for us. I know all the family members who have passed on welcomed you early this morning and you will be in that number that will greet each of us when our time comes. Until we meet again. Your nephew....
